Lady Gaga - You And I

This is the 4th single off of Born This Way. The Mutt Lange-produced (best known for his work with former wife, Country chanteuse Shania Twain) Country/Rock/Pop midtempo was first performed live last year on tour prior to its inclusion on the new album. It drew many comparisons to the song "Speechless" from her The Fame Monster. This song really showcases Lady Gaga's brilliant songwriting abilities and vocals.

There are two additional versions which would help this on radio (the original is already stunning) by Mark Taylor and 10 Kings. The Mark Taylor mix calls to mind those Pop single mixes often created for Shania Twain's singles back in the day. It adds some additional elements including swing beat drums. The production aesthetic of the original is still there. The 10 Kings mix feels like it is cut from the same cloth as last single "The Edge Of Glory" with its 80s synthpop meets Eurodance sound. Both versions are pretty good with the Mark Taylor one being the better one of the two.

Some additional versions of the original radio edit have been made with Lady Gaga replacing the Nebraska references with other states for those particular markets.
